Create an itinerary including Prešeren Square
The heart of the city's street life, Prešeren Square features a monument dedicated to Slovenia's most beloved poet and several major examples of Art Nouveau architecture. The square emerged after the city walls were torn down in the middle of the 19th century and it stands on the site of a medieval road junction that had stood in front of the city gates. The muse of poetry holds a sprig of laurel above the poet's head. Notice how the statue of the poet symbolically opposes the statue of his great love, attached to the facade of a building just across the square. The square extends to the other side of the river over the Triple Bridge. Plan to see Prešeren Square and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ljubljana online trip builder.

  • It's a nice little square which is a good point to meet before going to where you're going. The focal point is the Fransiscan Church and the Triple Bridge opposite. This can get a little busy.

  • Serves as the central square of old town Ljubljana, can be reached via the Triple Bridge from the two square, filled with amazing collection of stores, restaurants and national monuments and dotted with artworks. Very typical and representative of a European city with baroque buildings and cobblestone streets built along the stretch of the Ljubljanica River.
  • A beautiful place to be at. It's the city center so there are shops and restaurants all around, you can see the castle on the hilltop from here. I went on Christmas eve and it was just beautifully lit up.
